PPC Protect

The only fully automated click fraud solution for Google Ads

4.9/5 (12 reviews)

PPC Protect Overview

PPC Protect is a SaaS solution for pay-per-click marketers that automates the real time monitoring of ads to detect and prevent fraudulent clicks. Designed and built around an agency and enterprise-first approach, the product is priced according to protection values from entry-level ad spend of $2,500 per month up to $1m+ per month, with full feature access and premium support. Flexible to monitor just one or multiple domains with administration via a web-based dashboard, PPC Protect includes real time IP address and device blocking, detection via our proprietary self-learning AI algorithm, and protects an unlimited number of clicks.

The platform's Google Ads click monitoring funnel offers unobtrusive, covert performance with no impact on user experience and requires no installation. Copy and paste to setup within a website to initialize full traffic monitoring that leverages the collection of over 100 items of unique visitors data, before cross-referencing PPC Protect's fraudulent device / activity database. Augmented with machine learning & AI, the software's algorithms blacklist beyond the scope of the usual Google Ad 500 IP limit.

Even if and when a fraudulent clicker switches their IP address, ads will be protected accordingly by virtue of device ID tracking.

Pros

PPC Protect has been a pleasure to use from the first time we reached out. It's allowed us auto IP blocking, multiple detection rules, & many functionality features. Their low cost & great customer service also really helped.

Cons

At first we were concerned with integration of PPC Protect within our company but we soon realized it scales up extremely well. It's also very easy for multiple users simultaneously, which is even better than we anticipated.

Response from PPC Protect

Thanks for your kind review! It's great to hear that you enjoy using the platform, I'll be sure to pass your comments on to our customer service team :)

We have significantly more ad spend to attract real customers with now that all our competitors have been blocked.

Pros

Stopped click fraud on my Google adwords account almost instantly. I had serious problems with competitors draining my budgets but now that has totally stopped.

The support team are excellent at answering any queries we have and are very proactive.

Cons

The dashboard could do with a few more explanations as it wasn't particularly clear how to use at first. However the team did walk me through it (in person no less!) which was much appreciated.

Pros

This is a real lifesaver when it comes to projects in the competitive niche and specifically those with little budgets, when you want every click to count. It's easy to setup and starts working immediately, giving you all the necessary reports.

Cons

The number of platforms it works with is limited, I hop it will expand to more places where pay per click ads are available.

Response from PPC Protect

Best PPC protection product out there right now

Superb. Cost per enquiry was almost instantly cheaper which is an absolute must for any business. If you are spending a significant amount of your budget on PPC then I would highly recommend getting software. PPC Protect is, in my opinion, the market leaders at the moment. Couldn't really fault anything.

Pros

After trialling several companies that claimed to protect from PPC fraud I was amazed to see the results with PPC Protect. The money we saved without impacting our conversion rates was by far the highest and it was also surprisingly easy to use, considering the complexity of what it does. Customer support was also first rate and left a real sense of value.

Cons

Their entry level prices are good for what it does, but I feel the jumps between prices and features could be a little more gradual, allowing access to more features for those of us who don't spent too much.

Response from PPC Protect

Thanks for the great review Jonny, and great to have you on board as a PPC Protect user!

We've taken recent user feedback onboard and actually just unlocked all our features to all plans - including unlimited domains on our entry level plan!

Hopefully you find this useful :)
